Rust is a natural by-product of oxidation. When metal reacts with the air, it produces rust. And, like snowflakes, the rust on your Jeep door hinges will be unique to your Jeep. However, there are a few things you can do to prevent rust from taking over your hinges and ruining your Jeep.
Prevention is the best cure! The first step is to keep your Jeep clean. Remove any mud, leaves, or snow from the exterior of the Jeep. This will help keep the metal clean and free of moisture. Next, keep your hinges clean. Use a wire brush to remove any rust or built-up corrosion. Finally, keep your Jeep doors closed and stored in a clean and dry place. This will help prevent the hinges from becoming rusty.
If rust does develop on your Jeep door hinges, there are a few things you can do to fix them. You can use a rust-preventive oil, wax, or sealant. You can also use a rust-removing technique, such as sandblast or wire brush. However, always consult a professional if you are not sure how to fix your hinges.

- Identify the rust areas.
The rust on the hinges will be most noticeable on the outsides of the hinge plates. The rust will also be present on the inner surfaces of the hinge plates.
2. Sand the rust off the hinges.
Using a sandpaper that is slightly rougher than the one you used to clean the hinges, sand the rust off the hinge plates. Be sure to sand the entire surface of the hinge plate, not just the edges.
3. Apply a rust prevention/sealingant.
After sanding the hinges, apply a rust prevention/sealingant to the hinge plates. The rust prevention/sealingant should be a high-quality product that will protect the hinge plates from further rusting.
4. Apply a rustproof coating to the hinge plates.
After applying the rust prevention/sealingant, apply a rustproof coating to the hinge plates. The rustproof coating will prevent the hinges from rusting further.
